Transitioning to the cloud requires a design-thinking process. In this course, you'll explore the tasks and considerations involved in CloudOps solution design. You'll examine how to shift from a static to a dynamic infrastructure, utilize knowledge exploration and exploitation, and adopt a CloudOps managed strategy and architecture service. You'll investigate the role of prototyping tools, using them to create visual drafts of CloudOps solutions. You'll use Lucidchart with AWS and Azure to present architectural diagrams, visualizations to create CI/CD task boards, and Visual Paradigm to create multi-cloud visual architectures and perform a Five Forces Model analysis. Next, you'll investigate the patterns used to implement reliable and recoverable CloudOps solutions, including health endpoint monitoring patterns. You'll outline the steps involved in managing a hosted cloud service. Lastly, you'll identify the routing requests used in multi-cloud environments.
